VIDEO - Brax

A bit of a sad weekend for us here on the farm. Our Jersey cow that we have been grooming to become our new house milking cow started to have her first calf on Friday evening. Saturday morning John and I got up all excited to see the new calf but it had died. So disappointing. Anyway, we have started milking her - she is still a little scared of the milking machine, but is doing well and should have settled down within the week. Love having fabulous fresh, unpasteurised milk again.

So, here's the video for Brax:

I've had to switch comment verification back on - it annoys me so much, but the volume of spam was getting to me - I think I was deleting around 20 + a day.

  1. This totally inspires me to play with Brax now--and perfect as I need to catch up in my calendar (hopefully today!!) So sorry about your baby...I hope she is able to conceive again soon with better luck! Skittles is adorable!

  2. LOVE IT Helen! Thank you, keep the vids coming they REALLY help :) x

  3. Thank you, Helen, for demonstrating Brax! Now I know what went wrong in my first attempts! And I'm totally in love with Y-flip, didn't use it yet, but will do that very soon. How sad is the loss of the little calf.... Please give Skittles a big hug from me! Greetz from Holland,
